Learning objectives
L'obiettivo è fornire agli studenti una formazione a carattere pratico-applicativo circa i vari aspetti della riproduzione nei carnivori domestici. Il percorso formativo, attraverso l'attività ambulatoriale e chirurgica del reparto di Clinica Ostetrica Veterinaria, offrirà agli studenti la possibilità di seguire attivamente tutto il decorso del paziente. Gli studenti, interpretando i risultati dall'esame fisico diretto e delle più comuni indagini collaterali utilizzate in riproduzione come la citologia, il dosaggio ormonale e l'ecografia, potranno giungere a una diagnosi, impostare la terapia e avanzare una prognosi. Inoltre saranno istruiti sui trattamenti medici e chirurgici delle patologie mammarie, sulle più comuni tecniche di riproduzione assistita e sui principi di neonatologia.
